About Chris Dolan

My wife, 2 kids, and I live in Flossmoor, a suburb of Chicago. Our family had been vacationing in South Haven for years prior to us purchasing 'BeachPark Place'. We just love the South Beach area. Close to the beach yet an easy walk into town. When not busy communicating with guests I work for Philips Lighting, coach soccer, and am active in our church.

Chris Dolan purchased this house in 2007

Why Chris Dolan chose South Haven

If you read the review you will get a sense of why people love our house. If you don't want to read the's a combination of the location and the house itself. People really like that inside we have 2 distinct sitting areas. The kids tend to gather in the back room closer to the games and books. Guests LOVE our big dining table that can accommodate their entire group. They like that 3 bedrooms have queen size beds. They appreciate all the games, toys, and books in the house.

Outside, folks like the big shaded deck and the adjacent patio. They like that the back yard is fenced in... and that we have a warm water outdoor shower for rinsing off the sand.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved it. The location was perfect. It was very kid/family friendly. All needs were anticipated! We liked the big dining room table, toy area, and the multiple bedrooms. Nice deck.

just what we needed

  • 4 of 5

The location was great ! Close to the beach and park has promised and a short enjoyable walk to town . The home was great for our family with the kids liking to sleep/ play in the back room . The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because if you are looking for a extra fussy hotel like atmosphere it is not for you but for a family that wants a comfy place to get together it just great .

Perfect place for a multi family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were really happy with our stay here. We were three families together. My parents, my sister, her husband, their two toddlers, and me and my husband. If we had kids too the house still would have been comfortable. We laughed when we came in because the house and available space just kept going and going. The back porch and fire pit area are lovely and the house had all you would need for kids to have fun playing at the house or at the beach. It is less than a mile walk into the town to go shopping and eat. There are three grocery stores a short drive away. The beach and the playground are so close it felt like we had a beachfront house even though it is not. Also, this house is not as updated as some other houses but for a family with kids that felt perfect because it made the house feel safe to play in without fear that things would get ruined and it is still a lovely and comfortable place for the adults.

We had a great time during our time here. Even though the weather was cold and rainy, there was plenty to do inside the house, even for the kids group of kids that we had with us. Thanks for making our mini-vacation great!

Great Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I brought our daughter, son-in-law and 3-year-old grandson for four days. The location was PERFECT; quiet neighborhood, one block from a very nice park/playground and one block from the beach! Plus, within walking distance of downtown South Haven. The house was more than big enough for the five of us, and having the choice of charcoal or gas grills was awesome! Our grandson enjoyed the nice play area outside that was shaded part of the day and the use of beach toys that Chris provides. Lots of toys/games inside helped us to pass the time when we wanted a break from Lake Michigan. All in all, a wonderful time! I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Awesome House and Location for Families with Kids

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at BeachPark Place this past September. The house was perfect- we loved the outdoor deck and fire pit and the huge kitchen table and living space. There was more than enough room for 2 families with kids and we liked the numerous sleeping options. Do not worry about packing toys or games! There were so many things to keep our kids entertained in the house including books, beach toys and even strollers!

Location was perfect. Steps to the fantastic kids park and beach and a short walk to shops and restaurants.

Owner Chris was extremely easy to work with. Thanks for a great vacation! We will be back!
